It is baffling how much goes on behind the scenes in museums, so I thought I’d bring you along while I go through the steps of an inventory for a single artifact. This single artifact is part of the larger furniture inventory happening at the museum. First off, why would a museum be doing an inventory? This is one of those questions that has a million correct answers but more than anything else the answer is because it’s a good idea.
The fall colours have reached their peak here in the southern portion of Lennox & Addington County. If you want to see them, you'd better get a move on... the leaves are falling fast!
I took a mid-week drive with the goal of finding a top-10 list of viewing locations for a weekend road trip. However, the colours were fantastic along the entire route, so fantastic that it was impossible to narrow it down to a measly 10 places.
Coleen recently enjoyed perusing this "boo-tiful" picture book just in time for Halloween. Here is her review:

I’ll begin this blog by saying I miss you all. I miss hearing the voices of visitors talking about exhibits, the beautiful sound of music resonating with the audience, kids' laughter echoing in our hallway and the ability to create a sense of community within our walls.

My parent's property backed onto the old rail line that cut through the village. The tracks were still there back in the 80's, but I don't recall ever seeing a train moving in either direction.
My brother and I and other neighbourhood kids used to play and bike up and down the old tracks all the time, jumping into ditches, getting wet and dirty in the process. Long story short, we enjoyed every minute of it.

Lennox & Addington County is always a great place be, especially in the fall when the leaves light up the landscape.
This weekend we have a video crew visiting L&A during the peak of the autumn's transformation. Along with brilliant views of the tree line, they will also be filming some locals as they hike, cycle, ride, paddle and drive with the colours of the season as a backdrop.
To prepare for the visit, I had to pre-scout some areas to make sure that the leaves were looking good. Tough job, I know.
Now more than ever, it is important for business owners to provide as many outlets as possible to sell their products and services.
When COVID-19 forced non-essential businesses to shut their doors to foot traffic in March, those that already had an e-commerce function incorporated into their sales model had an advantage. They already had access to their customer base 24/7. For these businesses, the unexpected closure still stung, but not as badly as it could have otherwise.
